With numerous famous artworks and historical artefacts on display, Exeter's award-winning Royal Albert Memorial Museum is a must-see.
Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum recently reopened to the public after a multi-million pound refurbishment with the galleries, facilities and services of a truly modern museum. As a result the Museum is proud to have been awarded the national title of "Museum of the Year" (Art Fund Prize 2012)
Enjoy stunning displays and prestigious loans and exhibitions from national partners. Experience the splendour of the original Victorian spaces, see newly-revealed architectural features and discover new spaces. Enter from Rougemont Gardens and enjoy panoramic views of the city from the Roman Wall.
The displays take visitors on a voyage of discovery from pre-history to the present day, and from Exeter to all around the world. They aim to do more than re-present the collections, they intend to stimulate thoughts and ideas, seek opinions and contributions, start conversations and encourage debate, making the Royal Albert Memorial Museum home to a million thoughts.
Free entry gives everyone the freedom to visit many times and to stay for any length of time, and you an even enjoy a wonderful light meal or snack in the Museum Cafe.
